Family Movie Nights at the Rose Bowl

Family Movie Nights at the Rose Bowl

Perhaps as part of the ongoing pro-renovation PR campaign, or perhaps because the powers that be at the Rose Bowl Operating Company love children, the Bowl’s Jumbotrons will be showing family-friendly films all summer long — a sanitary, local alternative to the debauchery over at Hollywood Forever. The full movie schedule isn’t up yet, but [...]

Attention Animal Lovers

Attention Animal Lovers

The Pasadena Humane Society is offering two summer workshops for kids, one for 10- to 12-year-olds and one for 13- to 14-year-olds.

Our neighbor Lian Dolan, author of the upcoming Helen of Pasadena and mom-blogger/podcaster extraordinaire at the Chaos Chronicles, shares her posts with us from time to time. Here’s her latest, dealing with good books for sports parents, as well as resources for talking to sons about sex. Thanks to Chpliver for reminding me to post [...]

Tween Author at Motif

You might not normally think of shopping at Motif, an upscale gift and home store, for a good read for your 12-year-old, but you can do just that on Saturday.

Firefighters in Action!

Firefighters in Action!

You don’t need a kid in tow to want to take part in Fire Service Day on Saturday, when all eight Pasadena fire stations will be hosting open houses. Most exciting will be the happenings at Fire Station 33 (515 N. Lake Ave.), where firefighters will put out a vehicle fire and demonstrate such cool [...]

Summer of Song

Summer of Song

A while ago we profiled Sierra Madre principal and musical theatre maven Gayle Bluemel; now we’re back to sing her praises again, because it’s time to sign up for her Pasadena Musical Theatre summer program. Subtitled “You need more drama,” the intensive and intensely fun six-week program covers acting, voice, dance and stagecraft, culminating in [...]

Books: Bobby vs. Girls

Books: Bobby vs. Girls

Bobby and Holly have been best friends since, well, since forever. The only time they’re not best friends is when they’re at school, because it would be weird to have a friend who’s a girl at school. Holly is a great friend because she doesn’t act like a girl. She likes looking for rocks and playing carnival games and rolling down hills in a tire.

The Pied Piper of Hamelin from Parson’s Nose

The Pied Piper of Hamelin from Parson’s Nose

Parson’s Nose — what a great name for a theater company! Fortunately for Pasadena, Parson’s Nose is more than a great name. Its stated mission is to introduce “classic theater to family audiences,” through original one-hour adaptations of dramatic masterpieces. These staged readings (not performances) are designed to be both smart enough for grownups and [...]

Putt-putting Around South Pasadena

Putt-putting Around South Pasadena

Quiet, hidden and old-school, the Arroyo Seco Miniature Golf Course has more charm than a four-leaf clover. Tucked into the Arroyo on the edge of South Pasadena, this verdant golf complex includes a public 18-hole course, a par-3 course and the mini golf, which local kids have been frequenting since 1955. And at a mere $2 per [...]
